The State of Oportia (Alexandrian: L'État d'Oportie) is a country located in the south of continent of Eura.

In 1707 AN, the country was ranked first in Micras Democracy Index, with maximum score in political participation and civil liberties. In 1719 AN, the country accessed the Xäiville Convention, a non-aligned political organisation of democratic states. In 1729 AN, Oportia voted to leave the Xaiville Convention and join the Raspur Pact, unleashing a period of economic development and rapid growth.


The name "Oportia" derives from a combination of linguistic roots, suggesting a place of opportunity and harborage. "Oport-" is reminiscent of the Audente "oportet," meaning "it is fitting" or "it is opportune," reflecting the nation's foundation on principles of idealism and potential. The suffix "-ia" is commonly used in toponyms to denote land or country. Thus, "Oportia" can be interpreted as "the land of opportunity," symbolizing the commitment of the nation's founders to provide a fertile ground for freedom, growth, and prosperity for the Alexandrian diaspora; in addition to Nouvelle Alexandrie.

Government and politics

The State of Oportia operates as a constitutional republic under a system of representative democracy that incorporates elements of direct democracy through the Federal Electorate, a unique fourth branch of government. This structure allows for a balanced distribution of power among the executive, legislative, and judicial branches, while ensuring that the citizenry has a direct voice in the governance process.


The new Constitution, established in 1722 AN as a result of the 1721 Oportian protests and subsequent reforms, balances powers between the federal and city levels. It introduced a bicameral representative legislature while keeping the Federal Electorate of Oportia, tipping the balance in favor of more representative democracy. Key aspects of the Constitution include political neutrality for a greater amount of public offices, environmentalism, and expanded human rights protections.


The Head of State is the Federal Representative, who presides over the Federal Cabinet. The Federal Chancellor of Oportia acts as the Deputy, with specific reserved powers over foreign affairs and special responsibilities.


The Federal Congress of Oportia is the bicameral representative legislature of Oportia, divided into two chambers: the lower chamber (and most powerful), the Chamber of Deputies of Oportia, and the upper chamber, the Senate of Oportia. Federal Congress has constitutionally reserved powers that include proposing and voting on laws, political appointments, policies, and public initiatives.

Main article: Culture of Oportia

At its core, Oportian society cherishes the ideals of liberty, democracy, and community, fostering an environment where entrepreneurship and innovation thrive. The national ethos places a strong emphasis on the active participation of its citizens in both the political sphere and in community life, mirroring a commitment to direct democracy and civic engagement. The culture is characterized by a profound respect for individual freedoms and rights, coupled with a collective responsibility towards environmental stewardship and social welfare. This blend of values cultivates a community-oriented mindset among Oportians, foundational to the nation's identity. Its foundations are primarily Alexandrian-influenced, with prominent Babkhi, Zeedic, Constancian, and Natopian regional influences. Since its founding in 1706 AN, its culture has been influenced by successive waves of immigrants and the resulting mix of cultures has become a distinguishing feature of its society. This has made Oportia a fusion of elegance and tradition, where the architectural and artistic influences reflect a harmonious blend of classical and contemporary styles influenced by its Euran neighbors and by its past. The urban landscapes are meticulously planned to balance the beauty of public spaces with functional design, promoting a lifestyle where walking and cycling are integral to daily life. This emphasis on sustainable living and public welfare is evident in the careful attention to public gardens, art installations, and communal areas that serve as hubs of cultural exchange and social interaction. Politically, Oportia is deeply rooted in the principles of individual liberty, direct democracy, consensus-building, and inclusivity.
